Following their 40th-anniversary celebrations last year,  which includedreleasing their greatest hits and anniversary box set, ‘Souvenir,’ Orchestral Manoeuvres In The Dark (OMD) have announced further remastered reissues of their UK Top 20 album Liberator and their 1996 album Universal on vinyl on August 6 on UMe/Liberator.

Frontman Andy McCluskey’s fascination with WWII bombers influenced the title of the UK Top 20 album Liberator, named after the B-24 Liberator aircraft.Peaking at number 14 in the UK album charts, the record features singles “Stand Above Me” and “Dream Of Me” as well as a cover version of the Velvet Underground’s 1967 track, “Sunday Morning.” Universal, the band’s tenth album released in 1996, also had chart success with single “Walking On The Milky Way” entering in the Top 20 in the UK singles charts and saw the band make their 29th and final appearance on Top of the Pops.

Both albums haven’t been available on vinyl since their first release, will be reissued on 180g black vinyl. The albums were remastered at the iconic Abbey Road studios and follow a string of reissues in the last year from OMD, including the limited 12″ vinyl of their legendary anti-war hit single “Enola Gay,” as well as a limited reissue of the band’s iconic debut single,” Electricity,” on 7″ vinyl.

OMD will also embark on a UK arena tour in November of this year. The tour, which will see the band perform songs from their iconic album Architecture & Morality, plus many more hits from their legendary back catalog, will stop off at London’s Eventim Apollo and two hometown shows at the Liverpool Empire and Olympia.

OMD also recently announced a uniquely special You Me & OMD live show from London’s Indigo at The O2 on June 19.  For more information, click HERE.
